Texas Sunset bought by Carolyn

This seems to be the season for art shows!  We had a great time at the Wine Styles show  Thanks to my college friend, Carolyn, who helped me set it up (and drink some wine) and to my other college friend, Becky, who was able to come since she was visiting family. As usual, Becky is always a good spender!  Thanks Beck!  Thanks to my other friends who showed up,drank some wine, visited, and supported me.   Muchas Gracias!  You are all wonderful friends!

Last weekend was the Fire Museum Fall Art Show and benefit for the Fire Museum!  It was a beautiful day!  Wonderful entertainment from the Noche del Rio dancers and singers,  the Texas Clogger, jazz band, visit from the mayor, flute player....etc.  It was great entertainment at the Barrera Estate!  Thanks to all that participated!

Two More Paintings for Upcoming Shows

I wasn't happy with the last sunset so I tried it again. This one was done on watercolor paper with an acrylic wash and then painted over with pastel.  I think I am happier with this "Texas Sunset". 
 The second painting is titled "Top of the Morning to You".  It is pastel on sanded paper.  A little impressionistic in the background.  I think I am happy wtih this one too.  Love the colors!
I will probably frame them both and have them for the two shows that I talk about in my previous blog.
